We stayed for three nights and could not have wished for a better holiday. Mziki is a small and friendly lodge with enthusiastic and knowledgeable Rangers who went out of their way to ensure we made the most of our time there. A very personal, educational bush experience with wonderful and varied food served in beautiful surroundings with an honesty... More

We had a lovely time. One of the very few lodges in SA that allow kids of all ages on Game Drives and is a really kid-friendly space (think highchairs, jungle gym)..there is ample space to run around, laze around at the pool or on the grass. The food was simple but cooked with love. The staff is wonderful and... More

Very good Service, good Food. excellent lodge to relax. The gamedrives had been very nice, but it was very hard to find animals. We didn't see the elefants. The gras was too high. Sunrise and Sunset tee was wonderfull.

Dear Johannes, Thank you so much for your feedback on Tripadvisor. We are very pleased that you enjoyed your stay. Even the bigger animals, like the elephants, are sometimes a bit difficult to see, especially as the reserve is 6000ha large and they also move around a lot, through all the high grass and vegetation. I am however glad that... More

If you are planning to stay at Mziki and I recommend you do you are in for a utterly charming experience. First things first, this isn't a big luxe lodge with all mod cons, there isn't a spa, the wifi is patchy, the rooms are better than basic but not plush, and even the electricity is sporadic (outages on the...

We came to Mziki with our 18 month old daughter and it was absolutely perfect. A lot of places have an age restriction, but Mziki embrace families with children. It's small, intimate and unpretentious and with only few rooms, it probably wouldn't feel busy if all the rooms/ chalets were occupied. Lovely, friendly and relaxing environment with 2 game drives...

It is very beautiful place near Johannesburg. The service was excelent. We very much enjoyed the safari trip with the guide - he showed us places like paradies. We were already several times on a safari and saw in other places more wildlife-here it is the very special service!

I won a nights stay for 2 people at Mziki. The accommodation was very comfortable and the setting was beautiful, just 90mins from Joburg for a wonderful bush experience. Our ranger Ryan was very knowledgeable and the staff were attentive. Thank you Mziki

Great lodge. Although not a big 5 game reserve, good game viewing of elephant, Rhino big antilope etc. The barge trip on the lake with the variety of birds is very special. Knowledgeable ranger. Close to johannesburg. The lodge is small so no big groups. Intimate.
